One of the biggest action stars of all time, best known for never losing a fight, has officially found a new role. A new report from Deadline revealed that Jason Statham (Fast and the FuriousThe BeekeperThe Meg) will star in a new action-thriller titled Mutiny. Jean-Francois Richet, who also directed Plane starring Gerard Butler and Mike Colter, will direct the film. Lionsgate has acquired the rights to Mutiny, and production on the film is set to begin in the UK this September. Statham and his new production company, Punch Palace Productions, will produce, along with Marc Butan.

Mutiny will follow Cole Reed (Statham), who ends up on the run and caught up in an international criminal conspiracy after his billionaire boss is murdered in front of him. Lauren Bixby, who is the Senior Vice President of Co-Productions and Acquisitions for Lionsgate sang Statham’s praises, highlighting him as the perfect person for the role:

While Plane certainly wasn’t nominated for any Academy Awards, the film resonated well with audiences and earned a respectable chunk of change at the box office. It currently sits at a 78% critics score and 94% audience score on the aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes, and grossed $74 million at the worldwide box office, including a $10 million domestic opening weekend.
